Zeke was my boss.
I met him when we were teaching English on a summer camp in Germany. All the kids adored him, and frankly so did I.
Some people can leave such a lasting effect and impact just by being who they are; Zeke was one of those people.
His positivity was contagious.
In one of our many conversations he gave this negative-Nelly a much needed wake up call to seek the good in a person (or colleague!) ; that can surpass any slight annoyance.
Zeke introduced me to Oat Milk. (I have used it ever since)
His dedication and passion to live more sustainably challenged me to make changes.
He spoke about his family and loved ones with utter adoration and admiration, and about music with passion and energy.
